Kitchen Scrubbies

2 Materials
30 Minutes

Ok so I know this is not mind a blowing project, but they are practical and useful 😊. The scrubbies are great and can be thrown in the wash over and over. I really only use these now for dishes.

The scrubbies were an accidental discovery. I was making coasters one day and I hated the way they turned out. Honestly because they looked like scrubbies. Well I’ve been making them and using them ever since!

One wash cloth will make two scrubbies.

Start by folding your wash cloth in half and tracing your pattern on with a washable marker. I like circles but you could certainly make squares too or any shape you like.

Cut your shapes out.

Now cut your felt the same way. You can use two felt pieces or one depending on how thick you want them. I usually do a couple of each.

Stack all the pieces together and pin in the center. Two pieces of wash cloth then one to two pieces of felt.

Sew all around the outer edge leaving approximately two inches open to turn right side out.

Turn right side out. I use a butter knife to push out all the seems and get a nice edge.

Flip your opening in and sew shut. I then continue sewing/quilting through all layers in a spiral design.

I really love these. They wash up so good in the washer and dryer and they last a long time.

    I love this idea, wash cloths are just too big. But I have the same question as Crystal, why use felt? I think they'd be awesome without it.

    Same question - just asking so I keep track of the answer - why the felt?

  • Lisa Bristow Lisa Bristow on Apr 21, 2022

    Why you use felt? Don’t think it’s safe to put felt in dryer I would use something else in between.

    I love this idea! I like the felt .. more stability and friction for scrubbing.
